Thirty-three years after its start in Montreal, it is now a new normal to see the colorfully acrobatic, atmospheric Cirque du Soleil and its multitude of themed productions. They occur so often, you can throw a rock and hit one. The plan, then, is to make them unique, with potential new partnerships like in the case of “Toruk: The First Flight,” which is based on the the James Cameron film “Avatar.”
Cirque announced "Luna Petunia" back in 2014 and we've been waiting to see what this kid's show was all about ever since. Netflix acquired the series, which began airing on December 9th. This is our review.
The Resident Shows Division of Cirque du Soleil received the Institute's highest honor, the USITT Award, at USITT 2017. The award recognizes a lifetime contribution to the performing arts and entertainment communities. It was presented at the 2017 Annual Conference & Stage Expo on March 8 in St. Louis, MO.
Disney and Oprah have done it and, critics be damned, Marvel Comics has done it no less spectacularly. So after flirting with tent shows across the Hudson in the Meadowlands and tailoring shows for Madison Square Garden, it was inevitable that Montreal entertainment juggernaut Cirque du Soleil would make their own assault on Broadway, in hopes of a long-running megahit.
Have you ever wondered how the insanely talented performers who make up Cirque du Soleil spend their down time when not getting new tattoos and exotic piercings? Agency of record Y&R gets right down to it in a new campaign promoting the French-speaking Canadian group’s popular Las Vegas shows O, Zumanity and KA.
It’s 90 minutes of nonstop veteran circus acts and entertainment as daredevils dice with death, although the banana-chomping, mouth-tossing antics of the truly weird-and-unusual duo known as Daredevil Chickens provide outrageous, gross hilarity, quick clothes changes and near-nudity to take the edge off the white-knuckle, rollercoaster ride of amazing aerialists and acrobats.
With over 8,500 performances to date, La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil has been a Disney Springs staple for nearly twenty years. Since its inception in late 1998, La Nouba has been seen by over 10 million guests and will continue to dazzle audiences with its breathtaking blend of daring acrobatics and dazzling choreography through 2017, with a final performance scheduled to take place on December 31, 2017.
The Cirque du Soleil spectacular Sép7imo Día: No Descansaré premieres March 9 at Buenos Aires’ Luna Park stadium. It’s a huge show: after Sép7imo Día completes a three-month run of 5,000-capacity performances in Soda Stereo’s home town, a fleet of 20 trucks will carry the technical equipment for the tribute to the transcendent Argentine rock band -- which includes a custom crafted stage -- through Latin America.
Crayola Experience and Cirque du Soleil’s “La Nouba” are teaming up for a month at the Florida Mall attraction. Cirque Month Presented by La Nouba begins Saturday and runs through March 31. Visitors will be able to create “La Nouba” masks and airplanes, have faces painted and watch acrobats and musicians from the show in exclusive performances.
iGotcha Media, an interactive agency specialized in delivering turnkey digital signage and interactive solutions, today announced that it will exhibit with long-standing partner LG Electronics Inc. Canada, at the upcoming DX3 conference, Canada’s leading technology, digital marketing and retail event.
The Tenors are Las Vegas regulars. The award-winning Canadian vocal group first appeared in Cirque du Soleil’s annual “One Night for One Drop” at “Michael Jackson One” Theater at Mandalay Bay in 2014, and they’re back for the fifth installment Friday at “Zumanity” Theater at New York-New York.
Jim Dobson at Forbes Magazine spoke exclusively in Las Vegas with Laliberté about the inspiration behind his water charity, the outrageous luxury items he is offering up for auction at this year’s One Drop Gala (speedboat racing in Lake Como, private jets and more), and his future plans fighting the global water crisis.
Nothing could have prepared Daniel Lamarre for his gig as chief executive officer of Cirque du Soleil — a company that employs wigmakers and contortionists and yes, a CFO. The live entertainment giant, profiled in the current issue of Fortune, has wowed audiences for decades with its death-defying stunts and extravagant sets and costumes. But what goes on behind the scenes has also been quite colorful.
InPark’s Martin Palicki spoke with Gary Goddard and Taylor Jeffs, Director of Design at Goddard Group, on recent and upcoming projects along with their take on paths for industry growth. While InPark's conversation is informative, it's the question about an update on the Cirque Park that we're more interested in...
